We Bring You The Head of Alphonso Jackson

Well, he went out, a little bit off-form.

"Housing and Urban Development Secretary Alphonso Jackson announced his resignation today, citing "personal and family matters." He has come under pressure from Congress for his refusal to answer questions about a federal lawsuit and whether he tried to steer land to a business friend."

For the first time in awhile, a politico, either knowing what a shit-train the Bush Grindhouse is, or, under the glare of possible criminal charges, didn't cite "wanting to spend more time with family", for their hasty departure.

That may not be a option available to Jackson in the not-too-distant future.

The "personal and family matters" are Jackson facing a grand jury, on his cronyism, so, possibly, Daddy won't be coming home some day soon.

Chalk up another one for the Bush Regime.

Meanwhile, Alfredo Garcia can stay at rest.
